Inverted Vantage's WIP


#1

Just started this recently, though I’ve been thinking about it for awhile. The design relies on the user controlling the car mostly through gestures, with a HUD displayed using transparent OLEDs on the windshield, and a keypad for alphanumeric entry.

I have chosen this design path to minimize the time that the driver spends looking down/away from the road - the entire control mechanism of the car should be up in front of them, to maximize safety and control. The use of a physical keypad instead of a touchscreen enhances safety - users can feel the physical keys, and thus with practice do not have to look down and away from the road to type; unlike with touchscreens, where the lack of tactile feedback precludes one’s ability to instinctively sense which keys they are pressing.

Still a WIP and I have to do the interface - so little time, so much to do! :smiley: Thanks Visteon/CGSociety for the cool contest!

To make the interior, I decided that I had to make the exterior, or at least some rough mockup of it. I’m really trying to power through this, fingers crossed I can get it done on time. Next up is more of the interior. All next week: the interface.

I know this doesn’t show much, but it’s more to keep me on track. Interface mockup. I hope I can finish all this in time >.<

Just did 90% of the HUD. Now for animations, then some material changes, then rendering! :slight_smile:
